young guides in this natural environment, it's really given me a fresh energy. >> reporter: for these young tour guides showing visitors around the island they call home is also a great opportunity to grow up. >>> every year at this time scientists race to the antarctic. they use the small window of summer to study the frozen continent. more and more they're documenting changes they believe are linked to global warming. australian researchers have a strong presence at the south pole. they're essentially in their back yard. nhk world's takeo nakajima shows us what they're working on. >> reporter: it's summer in antarctica, and it's a busy time for animals, from penguins to scientists. experts at australia's four observation bases are hard at work, documenting climate change. th are ao seeing its effects firsthand. planes use ice runways to bring in researchers and goods. but those runways haven't been as reliable in recent years. when temperatures rise above minus 5 degrees celsius the surface begins to melt. that makes landing and taking off risky. 80% of flights planned in
the strategic environment had changed a lot in the six years since he was last in office. he called china's increased maritime activities a shared concern. he said all nations involved must abide by international law. prime minister says he understands japan's stance and gives his country's backing. vietnam and some of his neighbors have territorial disputes with china over islands in the south china sea. after the meeting, the two leaders held a joint news conference them said they will work together on various challenges facing southeast asia. >> translator: we have agreed the two countries will jointly tackle issues that concern east asia. we'll also cooperate in the fields of political peace and stability. >> prime minister zhun said they agreed that all conflicts and issues shall be resolved through peace and international law. >>> operate however japan's two main airlines have ground their fleets of 787 dream liners. the decision follows the latest incident with boeing's troubled plane. all nippon airway 787 made an emergency landing on wednesday in wrern western japan. alarms indi

that environment anymore. maybe that is good for the sunshine law but with intense media scrutiny and day-to-day negotiations it is tougher to get the deal done. i would like for them to go to camp david for one week. lori: with a chance to get spending cuts? will republicans have any leverage? >> there is opportunity to have responsible conversation. lori: that anything done? >> it is possible. the budget that was criticized the president has proposed drastic spending cuts and froze discretionary spending over five years n what democrats would be happy about what would follow if there was a deal. it is maybe a little less likely than one year ago but it is possible. lori: meno bernanke will leave at the end of the term. how will that unfolds? >> now -- now they say tim geithner will go to the head of the federal reserve. [laughter] i think he has had his do but it is a close relationship. it is with the entire board and not just the chairman. on lot of people have known them for a long time. lori: who will handicap the next fed chief? >> double not speculate. >> you were working with a t
and lawsuits. they had a challenging environment because citi is in the process of restructuring and cutting jobs. the broader market is rallying and the dow is up on good economic news and numbers jumped in december. brooke? >> let me ask you one other thing. you were tweeting about the atms and how they were customer-friendly. we are thinking hallelujah, it's about time. >> i was excited because banks like chase and pnc will give you $5 and $1 bills and coins at some point in addition larger bills like $50 and $100 bills. chase made a big push for this and rolled out 400 atms and that number can double. they are doing this as well. a couple reasons why. the more the atm can do, the less they mead a human bank teller to do for you. they help those with low bank balances. they can't afford to withdraw $60 when all they need is $47. >> i thought you were going tell me we never had to pay fees ever ever again. >> i don't think that will ever happen. >> thank you. >> from sympathy to suspicion. this notre dame football player would have been or could have been the heisman trophy winner and now
is summarize the threats we face in the broader strategic environment in which our counter-terrorism efforts take place. the death of osama bin laden marked a milestone in our efforts to defeat al qaeda. al qaeda's ranks have been decimated. more key leaders have been eliminated in rapid succession at any time since 9/11. virtually every major a al qaeda affiliate has lost its key leader or operational commander. more than half of their top leadership has been eliminated. al qaeda is on the ropes and continues to get pummeled. however, his death and the capture of many other al qaeda leaders and operatives do not mark the end of al qaeda or its continued plotting against the united states and other countries. the preeminent security threat to the ad states remains al qaeda and its adherents. since september 11, the counter- terrorism effort has been aimed at preventing the counter terror -- the counter efforts of al qaeda on the homeland. al qaeda continues to edify operatives overseas and develop new methods overseas to attack us at home. affiliated movements have taken us beyond the core l
year despite a weaker environment, and that has given exports a boost. >> exports are the backbone of the german economy. they continued to grow last year, albeit at a slower rate. companies are proceeding with caution. they are cutting investment amid uncertainty about what the new year will hold, especially for the eurozone. in 2011, the german economy grew by 3%. that figure dropped to 0.7% last year. the economy even contracted in the final quarter. the government is poised to cut its own forecast for 2013 to just 0.5%. that is unlikely to have an immediate impact on the jobs market. the unemployment rate is expected to see just a small rise this year. >> for, let's cross over to a frankfurt -- to frankfurt. not necessarily the greatest news for those without a job, but there was good news for the german tax man. >> absolutely. the government has been able to reach its budget plans earlier than expected. the new debt load has been lower than expected, and this has been very good news, although the government also lowered its forecast for the economy, but here at the financial m
the alliance is the foundation of japanese security in an increasingly difficult environment. japanese and american diplomats have been struggling to agree on how to relocate a u.s. military base in okinawa. they've run into strong opposition from residents. on top of that, the americans have been pressuring the japanese to start talks on a free trade agreement. farmers and lobby groups are urging abe not to join the transpacific partnership. many wonder how abe will balance these pressures as he tries to achieve these goals. nhk world. >>> four days of anti-government protests in pakistan have come to an end. patchari raksawong joins us from bangkok with an update on the situation. patchari, good evening. >> good evening, gene. the protests may be over but the problems remain in pakistan. supporters of influential cleric qadri were demanding the government resign for rampant corruption. it called for the end of demonstrations on thursday. with elections approaching, pakistan faces more difficult weeks ahead. we have this report from islamabad. >> reporter: qadri declared victory in fr

their parents, their family and others and threatening them. and especially when you are in an environment of uncertainty, people say, well, international community might be leave, the security might deteriorate, so it's easier for these people to be intimidated and switch sides. also impersonation and using uniforms. i see a lot of people here that have been in kabul, and i've met them there. you can easily buy an afghan army uniform or police uniform on the market. you can even buy isaf uniforms if you're looking for it hard in kabul. so that's a part, but also copycat, mentally ill and unstable individuals like in here, sometimes you see what is an increase in the crime because people when they see something, they copy that. they think this is something cool or something acceptable. but, of course, rage and revenge, sometimes these soldiers are personally mistreated. but the last factor, of course s what they call jihad; thinking, of course, this is the right way of action. so so it's a complex phenomena, and i'm not going to go about how to deal with it. if needed, we can talk about it
the right environment for conducting elections without interference and without undue concerns in that regard for the afghan people. we also discussed in a bit of detail and in the environment that we have all aspects of the bilateral security agreement between afghanistan and the united states, and i informed the president that the afghan people already in the -- called for the strategic partnership agreement between us and the united states have given their approval to this relationship and they value it as one that is good for afghanistan. so in that context the bilateral security agreement is one that the afghan people approve and i'm sure we will conduct it in detail where both the interests of the united states and the interests of afghanistan will be kept in mind. we had a number of other issues also to talk about. during our conversations and perhaps many times in that conversation beginning with the conversation of course i thanked the president for the help that the united states has given to the afghan people for all that we have gained in the past 10 years and that
a environment in i we can take care of the disputes we have on the dialogue table rather than through military statements and through military actions. >> rose: its president's last press conference of his first term, and the foreign minister of pakistan when we continue. funding for charlie rose was provided by the following:. >> s. >> from our studios in new york city this is charl captioning sponsored by rose communications >> rose: tonight we begin with news from the white house, president obama held the last press conference of his first term this morning. most foft cuss was on the battle over the nation's debt limit. the president warned in his opening are remarks that the failure to raise the debt sealing would threaten the u.s. economy. >> so we got to pay our bill its. and republicans in congress have two choices here. they can act responsibly and pay america's bills, or they can act irresponsibly and put america through another economic crisis. but they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. the financial well-being of the american people is not
of lifestyle. it's really wanting to understand the genetic bases of it and how the environment interacts with the genetic experience to give us the risks. >> the risks of diseases like cancer and heart disease are set to increase as more africans start eating food with high calories. by 2030, the world health organization fears they'll overtake diseases like hiv-aids as the continent's biggest killers. though africa has the greatest genetic diversity of any continent, the population has been around the longest. very little is known about people's genes compared to europeans, americans or asians. yet that knowledge could be vital in combating a future health crisis. the research will also strengthen science in africa. >> it's opening up opportunities for young researchers such as myself, it's a way we get to collaborate other researchers from africa. >> scientists in 18 countries are taking part in the pan-african research program attempting to unravel genetic secrets they believe have been kept far too long. tanya paige, joe ha happen esburg. >> it's been a tradition for centuries but an
in afghanistan? thank you. >> the interment of the -- environment of the narcotrafficker forces in uncertainty. when they raise an orchard or vineyard and turns it into a poppy field -- when he is not sure what is learned happened to him or his family, they turn to narcotics. it takes three months to grow it. it does not need refrigeration or economic integration, nothing. if we see an increased degree of uncertainty, we would probably see more poppy cultivation. it would be listed economic activities. -- illicit economic activities. the leadership [indiscernible] in the areas where the economy is thriving, we have seen a reduction of narcotics and cultivation of the poppy. in areas where we see most of the fighting, that is where most of the poppies are grown. >> let me close with a final question. jim used a number of statistics. one that struck me is i have the right to a 52% of the afghan population thought the country is going on in the right direction. my question to each of you, what is your view? is the country going in the right direction and are you optimistic or pessimistic as we lo
around policy uncertainty. there are many who believe that the uncertain environment that is prevalent in the nation's capital is adding to some of those concerns. we certainly hear from some of -- small-business customers and others who do not know what their tax rates are going to be or what areas the government may cut back on spending. it is a difficult position for people to wait in. even if they are seen profitability and growth in their business, they are trying to get by with what they haven't been rather than commit to -- with what a house rather than commit to new investments. >> you know how much of a world of participation rate is going to play in unemployment going forward? we have seen a sort of stabilization. will it hit the bottom? and have all of the we're factors played out and now it is just demographics? >> one dindane -- one thing that surprised everybody and one of the reasons we have had a lot of progress on the unemployment rate is past years we have not seen a lot of people re-enter the labour force. participation rates have been pretty much trending down. ther
attacks, the united states is susceptible to that environment. it's not only here in the united states but u.s. interests around the world. and that's why the u.s. has to maintain or believes it has to maintain that presence there. there's no doubt that going forward many of these issues are going to come to the surface. afghanistan could find itself in a very bloody civil war. iraq after the u.s. withdrawal has not gotten necessarily better. there's still violence. there are still attacks. but to some extent u.s. interests are a little more secured as a result of what happened there in the eyes of, you know, the united states officials that pursued that war. so again, you could make the argument that in afghanistan something similar could happen. but there's no doubt a great deal of uncertainty, great deal of questions remain. as to whether or not the central government in afghanistan can actually control the military and preserve the security, integrity of that country. and that remains to be seen. >> if only we could predict the future. all right, ayman, good to see you. >> thanks a
extent. the uncertainty of it all fascinated me, as does my environment, just by nature. so the book ends up being very much about our landscape, how we perceive it as fascinating in our youth, and how over time, it changes. the same substance, stone, rock, water, wood, guess from being the unknown, worthy of curiosity, to at some point being a threat, and the natural defiance of us living our lives, which is in defiance of our mortality, all the way. from childhood lower, immortal, to our elder years, where we become the archive, where we become the thing which holds so many people we have lost and is what survives. memory is what survives, and within that memory, the afterlife of so much. so, thank you. [applause] >> good afternoon. i'd also like to thank the organizers of the miami book fair for having me. when i started writing my book a year or two ago i certainly did not expect i would end up here, or seated on a panel with these gentlemen. i think everything we have heard so far is a lot of war stories represent a need to explain. why was there an outpost where there should never h
and one is to mr. dove -- when no one of your main arguments is that it's a good environment for negotiations of a similar situation, describing 2004. now, i want to know in light of all the -- that we have heard the government perceived by the taliban and the u.s. is pulling for the americans why would you say that the americans -- to talabani's in a situation -- [inaudible] could you please elaborate more and the other question is that in passing i heard something about india and iran. i would like to hear some more on that to see whether iran and india together or individually have any role in the play as you'll discuss. thank you very much. >> hi, katie from the department of state. you kind of reference the growth of ttp to the lack of support received by the pakistani civilian law-enforcement bodies. i wanted to see if you could kindly clarify whether the support you are looking for there was financial or domestic, political will and why do you think that support is provided to you? >> the gentleman behind. >> hi. i'm with the u.s. -- religious freedom. the role of reli
in this city. they can do lots of different things to create different environment russ. when calista and i left the inaugural in 2009, the president had given three great speeches, one here just before the election in northern virginia, one at grant park and then the inaugural address. i said if he governs like those three speeches, he will be eisenhower around he will split the republican party. three or four weeks later, he sits down with nancy pelosi and harry reid, passed 780 billion in stimulus, no one having read the bill and the republicans gut it and the speeches were wrong. the president tomorrow is going to sound right, okay? if he follows through on tomorrow's speech, he has a chance to be eisenhower. i don't think he will. i think he wants to be roosevelt in his second term. but that's neither here nor there. if congressional republicans can reach out on issues, take the case of gun control, i think the house judiciary committee ought to hold hearings in chicago. this is the president's hometown. the mayor is the president's former chief of staff. they have very strict gun cont

in zimbabwe in a very stressful environment and so my primary driver is fear. my urge is to protect. when i make decisions, my first thought is, how do i protect myself, that is the overwhelm g overwhelmingly largest segment of society driven by fear. next is happiness. next is commitment the reason we wrote the book, people do not think about their emotions. when they make the same mistakes over and over it's because emotions are making a decision when it comes to money. >> i want viewers to go to the website here. this is the quiz to determine your money mind. it is mymoneycode.com here. >> this has to go to honest conversations. >> fascinating. >> honest conversations with an "s." our team took it, most of the team spend money and save money and motivation is fear just like you said. i took the quiz, as well. and the results were 43% fear, 43% happiness. that's how i determined how i spend or how i save. what is that saying. >> a balanced approach. what it says is that you -- that you're very -- it's very unusual, by the way. >> really? >> overwhelmingly, 85% of people have a dominance
in this environment while it gives you experience and time to get them right? >> good to see you, professor. i think that question goes specifically to the larger question of the problem of principles-based rules. we are present prescriptive in our rulemaking. when we try, if you look at the proposal on general solicitation, when things are more principles-based, what we get back from lawyers, you know, trade groups, please give us a safe harbor with three easy steps and a check lists to ensure ourselves against liability both from the s.e.c. and civilly. there are oftentimes a press to get that sort of prescriptive rulemaking. quite frankly, i'm skeptical it would work because i don't know if folks would take the ball and run with it. the s.e.c., we, the commission, need to get on it and get the rules proposed and finalized. the fact that it's not done is a travesty. the deadline was in july of last year for final rules. and we only got our proposal out at the end of august. i hope and expect that there's a pathway forward. it will depend on which way chairman walter wants to go. >> could you comme
